Synopsis

Seeking refuge from her homicidal boyfriend after she witnesses a murder, a Las Vegas singer goes on the lam in a nunnery and becomes a beacon of light and hope for the nuns who live under the strict reign of their mother superior. The undercover singer makes the sisters see the sunny side of life, and reforms their outlook, as well as the church choir, with her dynamic style and personality.
